Koa Tree Overview

The koa is Hawaii's most common native tree. It is also a common sight in landscaped gardens. Koa trees grow fast and can reach heights of 100 feet (30 m). The beautiful reddish-brown koa wood is prized for its strength and weight, similar to black walnut. The ancient Hawaiians used koa wood to make canoes, paddles and furnishings.
